Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Antoine Griezmann over a contract worth £72.8 million, according to reports.
The Sun claim that the Atletico Madrid forward has accepted United’s offer of a five-year deal worth £280,000 a week.
United have indicated that they will meet Griezmann’s £89 million release clause, which will take the total cost of the transfer, including fee, wages and bonuses, up to £170 million.
United have also assured the France international that they will significantly improve their squad with new signings after he had reservations about joining Old Trafford if they failed to secure Champions League football for next season.
Jose Mourinho had made the signing of Griezmann one of his top priorities as the United manager is keen to revamp his attack.
United will be required to pay the £26-year-old’s release clause in one go, and the move could happen as soon as the transfer window opens.
